Lifelong Ohio State fan. Born and raised on the Ohio River on my grandfather's farm where I learned two important life lessons: 1, Always treat people how you'd want to be treated, even the people who mistreat you. 2, Three yards and a cloud of dust! One of my earliest memories as a child is wearing my scarlet and gray footie pajamas while watching OSU game replays on the local WOSU channel with my dad. I even remember Paul Warfield announcing. I grew up in southern Ohio and have lived all over the state including Chillicothe and Cleveland. I've been known to scream at the TV when Ohio State plays. I go all in every game hence why my screen name is IN ALL CAPS. When Ohio State loses I am sick to my stomach for several days afterward. When they win it's like freaking Christmas. I hate Michigan. I hate them more than Khan hated Captain Kirk. That Team Up North sucks. The SEC sucks. Go Bucks!


  • SPORTS MOMENT: My best personal sports moment was my 1 tackle in high school in the 1989 OHSAA Division IV state championship game at Ohio Stadium on the old field turf. To play an actual game on the same turf Woody walked on will always be the greatest sports moment of my life. That and OSU's 2002 national championship game win over Miami. I cried tears of utter joy after that win.

As good as he was in those garbage minutes he still needs to develop physically before he can take the pounding of being a regular contributor. Same thing for Mack and Victor. The reason Nick Bosa has been playing so much is he is so much more physically developed than a normal freshman. If McCall or Victor had come in built like Curtis Samuel they'd probably be playing.

Ive watched Nebraska more than anyone else other than OSU this season and I am NOT impressed. If Wisconsin can complete a few passes it wont be close.

Meyer is great at the intangibles, but average with X's and O's. 

Is your name Billy Madison? That has to be one of the dumbest comments I've ever read in the history of bad comments.

Your assessment is wrong and ill-informed on so many levels. First off, JT was our scout team QB when we played Clemson in the Orange Bowl. He freaking red-shirted that year and didn't even play. If you are going to throw shade on someone please get your facts right. It makes you look like a goober. Secondly, if Joe Burrow were our QB we'd have more than 1 loss by now. That's not a knock on Joe it's a knock on his lack of experience in a real game not a 67-point blowout. I'd rather have JT under center than any other QB we have right now. Thirdly, it's the coaches jobs to put our players in a position to succeed. if WRs aren't getting open over the middle and if the OL aren't blocking well then the coaches must fix it.

Someone posted a question for the Northwestern Mailbag about how reactionary our fanbase is. I think the answer is going to be in the 90 percentile. Yeah I freaking HATED losing to Penn State. I cannot stand what they stand for (without getting into the Sandusky thing). But it was not the end of the world as it was not the end of the world the weeks after the VT loss in 2014.

We are not even in the same universe in terms of our passing game as Bauserbomb's night in 2011 in Lincoln after Braxton got hurt. The passing game HAS improved the last 2 weeks and we make that FG Saturday we win because I believe in our defense. Shit happens. Move on and drink bourbon. We live in an era of Ohio State football where we will get a hell of a lot more brighter days than darker days. Cherish it while it lasts.

Im hoping we come out and totally obliterate NW. Historically, Urban's teams come out with fire in their nostrils after a loss.

I'm also not holding the Clemson loss after the Sparty loss over Urban's head simply because of what happened with the team during that span. Losing Spence and Roby killed what left we had of anything resembling a defense. The game also came almost a month after the Sparty loss. We were rusty when we started and things were not helped by the fact we were playing a lot of new guys in there for such a big game which added to the problem. Spence's drug use and Roby getting hurt were not anything Urban could control.

I remember an audio clip of an interview with Cobain in regards to his take on Nevermind. He said (paraphrasing), "I didn't like it for a lot of reasons. It was just too slick." Everyone knew his recording label (and the corporate music industry) had long forced artists to change their music to something they feel they could sell to the masses. But when I heard that clip from Cobain it just pissed me off because I would have LOVED to have heard the album Cobain really wanted to do for Nevermind.

Garbage was never considered part of the Grunge movement. Ive actually met Shirley Manson and they are much, much more in line with a Blondie or even a Joan Jett than they ever were grunge.

Comment 22 Oct 2016

I think Trey Johnson is a member of our staff isn't he? When Urban announced he couldn't play anymore I think they put him on staff so he could help the team and finish his degree.

Mman can't be killed. He's like energy, you can only make him take a new form

He'll come back as an even more douchier troll.

Ive always been so flabbergasted at how much vitriol is spewed when people talk politics these days. Ive read exchanges between two grandmothers who sounded like they'd tear each other's throats out. Its terrible. I am SUPER glad it's kept under wraps here. If you've ever read the comment sections after political articles at places like Yahoo, MSN, or even local newspaper sites people say the most horrible things you can imagine. If that bile were allowed on 11W the viewership and membership numbers would go into the toilet and there would probably be no more 11W. That just cant happen. Where else are we going to talk shit about TTUN?
